Hello! Thanks for reading! :)

Unfortunately, I’m probably not going to get around to testing the Cloud Flights for a while. I’m not a YouTuber/Streamer/Influencer, so unlike a lot of folks out there in those categories, HyperX didn’t send me one for free.

I just bought a DT990 Pro (review coming soon) and an Xbox One X, so my reviewing/tech/fun budget is a little short for a while. On top of that, the Cloud Flight seems to be backordered at most online retailers, and isn’t available anywhere locally to me.

I am very interested in it…might just take me a while to get there!

As for gaming headsets that combine good audio quality and mic quality…have you looked into the Arctis series at all? I recently re-reviewed the Arctis 3 on my personal site here, and here’s my original review. You could spend $79 on the Arctis 3 and use the rest of your budget for some new games, if you wanted to.

Under $200 there are so many great choices so you’re really going to have to just do some exploring! A lot of other reviewers liked the microphone on the Alpha’s more than I did. I don’t think it’s a bad mic…it just wasn’t quite the leap up I was expecting from the Cloud II. I think the G433, Astro A10, Arctis, and many others all have better mics.

Thanks again for reading and good luck in your search! Sorry I won’t be reviewing the Cloud Flights for a while.

I do radio voice work by day, and write by day and night. I studied film and production. I love audio, design, and music. Also video games.
